Hi here I am back again.
Virtually back where I started.
I have been concentrating on exercising as my Facebook friends can attest as Runkeeper has been keeping everyone abreast of my walks with Lucy the Wonderdog.
But last Tuesday, I think, everything went haywire again.
I woke up in the morning and could hardly walk. The pain in my left foot was and still is severe. It kind of feels like a stress fracture but honestly I was fine when I went to bed but not the next morning. Surely I could not have broken something during the night.
Then my calf muscles have become really sore like I had done too much. Back of course kicked in in sympathy. I am a mess.
Also my hands are swelling. Having trouble getting my wedding rings on and off my left hand and I think the rings on my right hand will have to be cut off. There is no way they are budging.
Dont quite know how to approach this. I suppose the first step is the GP but I dont have great faith in GPs other than treating colds, writing prescriptions and referring you to specialists. And besides, I think my GP is cross with me because I complained about her always being late. Finally went to see her again last week and I was the last appointment and was in and out in no time and she was only 30 mins late. She also wouldnt approve my care program until September although she previously had said she would renew it in July. Sigh.
Weight is still slowly going up. Not eating wheat or dairy.
This could be part of the problem of course. Am now trying to write down what I eat everyday and tracking my weight.
So I am taking Panadol Osteo a couple of times a day to take the edge off the pain.
I will wait another week to see if everything might settle down.
Hopefully I will have better news next time but walking and the gym have been put on hold at the moment which is really annoying me as the weather is glorious at the moment.
